Witch and Watchman was founded in London in 2014 by Helen Z B Wilson, who is the artist and designer behind Witch and Watchman’s striking wallpaper and fabric designs. Helen is a graduate in Fine Art from Central St. Martin’s College of Art and Design in London.
A love of painting birds, animals and flowers and a longstanding love of wall-murals and the ‘maximalist’ wallpapers and fabrics often found in stately homes and palaces inspired Helen to use her skills of fine and detailed painting to design ‘Amazonia’, the first elaborate design for Witch and Watchman. Looking to create designs that resemble a modern take on Chinoiserie, Witch and Watchman is about bold prints that make a statement.
Every element in each design has been originally painted by hand in oil on canvas then digitally printed onto wallpaper and fabric using top quality manufacturers in the UK.
Witch and Watchman currently produce Wallpaper, Fabric, Lampshades and Cushions in both Silk, Velvet and Cotton and are proud to be featured in the ‘Best new-season fabrics and wallpapers’ October 2014 Edition of Elle Decoration.
